Im exhausted. Im not really sure why, I fell asleep fairly early last night. Its gorgeous out today. Im thinking (as long as it stays semi warm) that AJ and I will go for a walk. Or maybe well take a ride over to daddys softball game in Kings Park and play on the playground. Maybe I'll even start my project 365 tonight! Sooo anyway, does anyone even read this? LOL or am I talking to no one??? HEEELLLLLOOOOO?

Ok so anyway, Im sooo relieved, I went for AJ's recertification for his health insurance yesterday and I am FINALLY done! woot! I was getting so tired of going there. Then I got my car inspected and relaxed the rest of the day. Next Wed, I have NOTHING to do! I cant wait. Ok, Im off for now.

Borrowed from Always a Mama :)

Hope you dont mind!

25 item to do list that EVERYONE should follow!

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day, and while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God (or to your higher power or meditate) about what is going on in your life. Buy a lock if you have to.

3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, "My purpose is to__________ today. I am thankful for______________"

4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

9. Life is not fair, but it is still good.

10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

11. Don' t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

12. You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

13. Make peace with your past so it will not spoil the present.

14. Don' t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"

17. Forgive everyone for everything.

18. What other people think of you is none of your business.

19. GOD (depending on your beliefs) heals everything - but you have to ask Him (translate to your religion).

20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!

22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

23. Each night, before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for__________. Today I accomplished_________.

24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

25. When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You will be smiling before you know it.

My goals for 2009

1- Find God (on the corner of First and Amistad lol I had to). Surrender to the fact that he is the supreme being, and with him all things are possible. God never hands us things he knows we cant take.

2- Lose weight! I want to drop at least 10 lbs by July, and be back to my prepregnancy weight by 2010. I also want to be toned/healthy. Start weight (cant believe Im posting this!): 160 lbs. Ideal weight: 125

3-Become a better wife/housewife. I tend to put off cleaning as long as possible. Then when it gets really bad, or we have company coming over, I take 2+ hours to clean everything. My laundry piles up so that there are 5 loads to do at a time. And I NEVER cook. I want to get better at all of those things/

4- Do more with AJ. The fortunate part to being taken off of a 5 day work week is that I get a day off with AJ. I usually have lots of running around to do those days, or I get lazy and dont do much. I want to get out, especially since the weather is getting nice now, and take him to activities.

5- Work on my marriage. People say that the first year is the toughest, and boy were they right! This year the Lord has put us through lots of challenges, and we are going through a very tough spot. I want us to get back to the way we were. I want us to all be happy. And most of all, I want to let go of the past.

Thanks for reading guys!

Day 1: hiiiiii!!!

So here I am! I decided that I dont have much else to do, so I wanted to start a blog. Please feel free to follow me :)

So I started this for a few different reasons: (in no particular order!)

1) I want to get healthy. Lose weight, east right, exercise and just become healthier in general.
2) I want to get more organized. I figure if I can see on here how lazy I am, maybe it will motivate me? (who the hell am I kidding anyway haha)
3) I want to start a project 365. For those of you who dont know, its where you promise to take/take at least one picture a day everyday for a year. sounds like fun right?!
4) Hopefully, Ill start slowly achieving my goals more now that I can see the things I want/need. Then I can look back and see what I have done!
5) I want to get my faith/spirituality back. For those of you that know me, before AJ came along, I would go to church every week. I was a very active member. Im ashamed to say, other then Ash Wed, I have not been to church in a REALLY long time. I think I need God in my life right now, and with all he has blessed me with, I owe it to him to try a little harder.

Soooo, off to write my goals!
